- Are flying cars really going to become a reality? Well, the answer is yes. Very soon, the flying cars will be officially launched among us. Isn’t it great?
What exactly are flying cars?
Flying cars are the hybrid version of a car that will fly over the skies as that of a plane. They could even fly at very high speeds travelling miles of distance within a minute. Also, they can easily take off to the ground or highway. Also, these cars will surely minimize automobile exhaust and traffic congestion.
The vehicle’s authorizations and official launching are expected to be completed by the end of 2022. However, those who are eager to take these flying cars for a spin would need a driving license as well as a sport pilot’s certificate.
How close are we to dream flying cars?
We all have grown up seeing flying cars in Si-Fi movies, but technological advancements have made it a reality. Recently Stefan Klein’s AirCar became the world’s first flying car by flying from Nitra airport to Bratislava International Airport successfully for 35 minutes.
Creator of AirCar Klein had done several trails and concluded the cars could fly up to a height of 2500 m or 8,200 ft and can cover about 600 miles (1000 km). And only in 2 minutes and 15 seconds, these cars can transform into aircraft from a car.
Now, many companies are working on launching flying cars very soon. So, the long years of wait are going to end that will turn a dream into reality.
Why craze for flying cars increasing among people?
Flying cars are the hybrid version of aircraft, and normal cars thus can perform a dual function. Many big companies are investing millions in this project because they knew the market demand is very high. Similarly, people are waiting for the official launch of these dream cars despite being too expensive. The major reasons for the craze among people for flying cars can be:
Superfast speed and super cool feature
In today’s fast-paced world, we all love to do things faster, easier and in the most exciting ways. And, these cars can fly miles within minutes. So, you can travel anywhere and anytime whenever you want. Also, the hybrid version of both car and helicopter makes them super cool.
Covers the disadvantage of aircraft.
There should be clear visibility to fly an aircraft otherwise can lead to a serious accident. But, you can turn off flight mode in poor weather and drive on roads by landing on highways.
No traffic problem
Imagine life without a traffic crowd. Well, we all may have missed something important in our life just because of traffics. But, with the dream flying car, you can fly your way.
Are flying cars environmentally friendly?
This is the most debatable question among people. Few people are against the concept of these cars as they will run on the same fuels used in vehicles. And, the major concern is pressure on limited fuel sources will rise drastically. But, besides that, there are several benefits flying cars can provide to the environment:
A great alternative to air-polluting vehicles
We all know pollutants emitted from vehicles are major reasons for global warming and climate change. So, a flying car can both minimize the air pollution and burden on roads by evading too many vehicles.
In a sense that, fuel lost by the vehicles during the traffic on roads can be saved. Also, they can travel faster and can be economical in the long run.
Minimal emission of harmful gaseous
Some research found that flying cars emit less harmful gases like carbon monoxide, Nitrous oxides and greenhouse gases. So, the health hazards that appeared due to vehicles will be quite less.
As there will be low ground infrastructure so less destruction of nature
The widening of roads to accommodate growing vehicles has destroyed the many fertile lands, forests, and wild habitats. But, these burdens on the environment will be minimized with the launch of the dream cars soon.
Well, technology is not bad. But, how we use them is a matter of concern. The same goes with the upcoming future flying cars too!
